Internet & Networking As we happened to be talking about advertisements on OSNews yesterday, and the use of Adblock, I stumbled upon a blog entry by Adblock Plus' developer, who is trying to improve Adblock in such a way that it is less harmful to webmasters. His suggestion is surely intriguing, but will it fly wth Adblock users?

Tried ABP in the past but it didn't take much time to realize that the only annoying ads I wanted to stop were the obnoxious and flashy ones. That's why I started using FlashBlock instead of ABP, whitelisting only the sites I really need flash for. It's quite a different approach, but the result pleases me (and my old pc) more than with ABP.
